Shah Mehmood Says That Pakistan is a free and autonomous nation, and its decisions should be made in line with the Constitution, the law, and the desires of the people.
The ex-foreign minister stated that external intervention in internal affairs is the biggest source of anxiety in Pakistani society, additionally, he said that the National Security Committee (NSC) had reported foreign involvement and found it inappropriate.
“We called a diplomat to the Foreign Office to issue a demarche at the instruction of the NSC,” Qureshi said, adding that the government had registered the protest through the ambassador in Washington.
Qureshi’s comments came after the governing party blamed the opposition for working with a foreign country to overthrow Prime Minister Imran Khan in the National Assembly thru a motion of no-confidence.
The resolution was abandoned by Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri last Sunday, claiming the opposition’s vested interests, and the National Assembly was disbanded by President Dr Arif Alvi.
The Ex Foreign Minister also said Turkey, China, and Russia had written statements to the FO expressing their support for the PTI. “They want a better Pakistan,” Shah Mehmood Qureshi stated, referencing Turkey’s statement.
The country, according to Qureshi, is “suffering from hysteria” as a result of the stock market’s last-day meltdown.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi criticized the media for staying silent on the issue, adding that some media outlets claimed the letter was fake. Qureshi criticized the media for staying silent on the issue, adding that some media outlets claimed the letter was fake.
“India wants a soft government in Pakistan,” he said, adding that the neighbor nation is “disgusted” with such a Pakistani government that protects its interests and follows an independent foreign policy.
The Ex FM went on to say that while the PTI wants good relations with India, however, we would not accept indiscretions against Kashmir.
“It is up to the people of Pakistan to choose either they want to be controlled by self-reliant, dignified leadership or say yes with their eyes closed,” Qureshi said.
He announced his departure for Lahore alongside the premier, accusing the opposition of ‘locking up’ disagreeing PTI MPAs in a hotel due to a lack of confidence.
